UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

RAYMOND B. WHITEHEAD, OF NEWARK, NEW JERSEY, ASSIGNOR TO THE WHITEHEAJ) & HOAG COMPANY, OF NEWARK, NEW JERSEY, A CORPORATION OF NEW JERSEY.

WATCH-FOB.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Oct. 28, 1913.

Application filed July 3, 1912. Serial No. 707,463.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, RAYMOND B. WHITE- HEAD, of Newark, in the county of Essex, in the State of New Jersey, have invented new and useful Improvements in l/VatclnFobs, of which the following, taken in connection with the accoinpanylng drawings, is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to watch-fobs and has particular reference to the detail construction thereof, whereby means are provided for attaching a strap or chain thereto.

Heretofore in making fobs of this character, it has been customary to solder or otherwise attach to the pendant a strip, plate or loop of some kind of material which forms a means of attaching it to a strap or chain.

My object, therefore, is to form an attaching means integral with the collet of the pendant and thus avoid the necessity of solderin or otherwise connectin it thereto.

A further object is to provide an economical and durable attaching means by utilizing for this purpose the material which has formerly been cut out of the collet to form the open face of the pendant.

Having the above objects and uses in mind, my invention, therefore, consists in the several new and novel features of construction hereafter described in connection with the accompanying drawings which form a part thereof.

Figure l is a view of the complete fob with accompanying strap. Fig. 2 a central, vertical cross section of the same, somewhat enlarged. Fig. 3 a view of the collet showing in dotted lines the original position of the lip used as an attaching means.

The fob A is composed of the collet 1- formed from a sheet of metal, such as tin, and having an upturned edge forming a circumferential flange 2. The central portion of this collet is cut away preferably in the manner shown in Fig. 3 to form the slotted lip or loop 3, shown in dot-ted lines on said figure. This lip is bent backward upon itself on the outside of the collet until substantially parallel with the body thereof. The aperture or slot in the lip 3- is adapted to receive a strap '5 by which the fob is attached to a watch.

6'is a mirror suitably mounted in the collet, it being backed up by the cardboard 8 is a plate of suitable material, such as tin, and usually covered with celuloid, having the upturned edge 9 of suitable width and diameter, so that it is adapted to be forced over the flange 2- on the collet .1 and frictionally hold the parts together.

The corrugated cardboard is of sufficient thickness so that when the flange 9-' is forced over flange 2 the space between the collet 1 and the plate S is entirely filled, and the mirror 6 is therefore substantially immovable.

What I claim is:

1. A watch fob comprising a collet having a circumferential edge flange, a back provided with a flange adapted to engage the flange upon the collet for frictionally holding the parts together, a display device inclosed by said collet and back, said collet having a central opening, an integral tongue extending into said opening and bent backwardly upon itself, a portion of said tongue cut away to form an opening, and a flexible link extending through said opening and forming supporting means for the fob.

2. A watch fob comprising a collet having a circumferential edge flange, a back provided with a flange adapted to engage the flange upon the collet for frictionally holding the parts together, a display device inclosed by said collet and back, said collet having a central opening, an integral tongue extending into said opening and bent backwardly upon itself, and a flexible link con nected to said tongue and forming a sup porting means for said fob.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 26thday of June, 1912.

RAYMOND B. WHITEHEAD.

L. ALLAN BUCHER, DAVID L. LEVIN.
